      Hand recorder for this hand: SideKick 1.1.417.4

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:spade: , 3:spade:
      Hero posts small blind ($0.02), BB posts big blind ($0.05), 6 folds, Hero raises for $0.13, BB 3-bets $0.35, Hero 4-bets $1, BB calls

      Flop: ($2.30 - 46 bb) Q:club: , 9:diamond: , 9:club: (2 Players)

      Turn: ($2.30 - 46 bb) 6:club: (2 Players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $1, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled back ($1)


      BB was 13/8/6 over 153. He 3betted me a couple of times in a row as I was opening almost any 2 from the BU and a ton from CO.

      Preflop: tried to steal the BB and got 3betted. I figured I'm blocking the A so I could 4bet bluff. In retrospect, I could have picked a hand like AQ/AJ.

      Flop: when he calls my 4bet, I'm pretty sure I'm against TT+, AQ+ as he could easily 3bet me for value. On this flop my cbet would fold only AK which is not a huge part of his range so I just give up as I don't have no to little equity.

      Hey Dawidas888,

      4bet bluffing with a blocker is fine here.

      I don't think you get a very good price on your bluff however. Something like $0.85 would be fine imo to fold out opponents bluff range.

      Postflop after villain calls a 4bet, giving up is fine.

      Hi w34z3l

      Thanks for the tip!

      I used to 4bet to 20-24BB but I agree that by reducing that to 17BB I could get the same amount of folds and a better price.

      Thanks again!
